a criminal background children. we have a piece at the nation.com by our washington reporter which raises the question of whether the nra is really there for gun owners or for manufacturers. it speaks a little to what ben was saying. that they represent and lobby for these gun companies, which are feeling the heat and one hopes that the 2005 law which shielded gun companies from liability regarding gun violence, is looked at very hard. i think the key thing, and joe palafano, the chief domestic policy advisor spoke of in the wake of the tragedies of 1968 the assassination of martin luther king, of bobby kennedy, that johnson and palaphano knew that time is of the essence, and i think that's made even more starkly in light of what we now know about the nra's strategy in the wake of tragedy after tragedy, columbine, virginia, aurora, now. i'm hoping that the political will is strong because the time for meaningful conversation will be with us forever, but the time for political action is now. >> karen, peggy noonan is advocating much the same, actually, in the "wall street journal" saying d

victims of friday's shooting massacre while wakes are held for three others. in washington, meanwhile, there are growing signs that the country is getting serious about gun control. during a meeting with top cabinet officials yesterday, president obama directed them to take a hard look at proposals to combat gun violence, and over on capitol hill senate majority leader harry reid joined with two other pro-gun rights democrats to suggest that new gun laws should be on the table. >> we need to accept the reality that we're not doing enough to protect our citizens. in the coming days and weeks we'll engage in a meaningful conversation and thoughtful debate on how to change laws and culture and allow this violence to continue to grow. >> an nra rating of an a, but, you know, enough is enough. my -- i've got -- i'm father of three daughters, and this weekend they all said, dad, you know, how can this go on? and i, like i think most of us, realized that there are ways to get to rationale gun control. >> many republicans, however, remain further away from reform. some are even pushing for mo

for reasonable gun control legislation. a new "the washington post"/abc news poll finds 54% now favor stricter gun control laws, that's a five-year high, by the way. it is also the point the president made with his call to have action now. >> since i've been president, this is the fourth time we have come together to comfort a grieving community torn apart by mass shootings. fourth time we have hugged survivors. the fourth time we have consoled the families of victims. we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. we will be told that the causes of such violence are complexed and that is true. no single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or present every senseless act of violence in our society. but that can't be an excuse for inaction. surely we can do better than this. >> that moment is what the "washington post" is calling president obama's enough is enough speech. joining me now, now by the way a consultant to mayors against illegal guns. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, tamron. >> our article is why we wanted you on as

correspondent pete williams with us from washington. pete, this weapon that lanza used at sandy hook elementary, a military-style rifle with 30 rounds in the clip, hundreds more at the ready, this is legal in a state with an assault weapons ban. tell our audience how is that possible? >> it's possible because of the way that assault weapons are defined in the law. this was true in the original assault weapons ban that was a federal one from 1994 to 2004. what it does is it says if a weapon possesses a certain number of features that the law considers to be primarily for military purpose such as a flash suppressor or a collapsable stock, if you have enough of those features, then the weapon becomes an assault weapon and it's banned. if it doesn't have enough of those features, then it's not. it's not the overall construction of the weapon. it's the focus on these individual features. and this is sort of the heart of the controversy, martin, because on the one hand is the point i gather your question implies, which is the assault weapons restriction seems to be too narrow. on the other hand, the
